Yes I guess they are in the sense that their tests could be falsely negative for some reason. On the other hand that is another 3000 people tested. Track and trace will be the key. Fingers crossed though eh?!

Extract from a lengthy article in The Times today, stand by for Kopite Outrage !

Unesco described plans to build a 52,888-capacity stadium for Everton football club, given planning permission in February, as “unacceptable”. The designs entail filling in Bramley-Moore Dock, which opened in 1848.

Heritage campaigners fear that this may prove the final straw after Unesco said that it would cause a “major adverse impact on the authenticity, integrity and outstanding universal value of the world heritage site”.

Just because it's good for mental health to remember the club is above and more than the 18-month shit-show cycle we've become:

Quote from: The Echo
Everton have been told the club's new stadium has the potential to be recognised as this decade's version of the world famous Guggenheim Museum in New York City.

The Blues are set to build a state-of-the-art 52,000 seat ground at Bramley-Moore Dock, with the club hoping to playing games there at the start of the 2023-24 season.

Everton's £500m project has received planning approval from Liverpool City Council and the club are now awaiting the written go-ahead before beginning work on the stadium and Professor Michael Parkinson, of the University of Liverpool, has made the stunning claim that if the club deliver on their plans, then the Blues' new home on the Mersey will become a global architectural icon - just like the Guggenheim in Manhattan.

Speaking on the Constructive Voices podcast, Professor Parkinson said: "We were joking before that I support Liverpool and that I am a Red.

"I think our owners have been good for the club but they have made some strategic mistakes. Everton Football Club have not been as successful as Liverpool Football Club but their commitment to the city is greater than ours.

Their ambition for the development is really fantastic. If they pull it off it, I think it could become a global leader, I really do, that's the significance of this. We can all think of cheap and cheerful football stadia that you may as well be in Tesco. They have no soul, no quality, you can't defend them, they are there. They are modern and you can park.

I think this is a different kettle of fish, if they pull it off. They have not pulled it off until they have pulled it off.....if they do that, it will be the Guggenheim of the 2020s.

"Everybody will come and see how they did it, if they pull it off. I hope they do and I think they will do. I rate, very highly, the people involved in this."


They want spades fully in the ground by the end of the year and 23/24 is still the pencilled in date for our first season there.
2 more years left at Goodison if that goes according to plan (although i'd wager it will slip by a year myself)

The big advantage of building a brand new stadium in a brand new location is that there is no disruption from the existing site.
When the shite built their big new loft conversion, they were restricted by the fact that the building site was within the footprint of an existing working football stadium, so they were having to work around the fans on matchdays etc.
White Hart Lane was similar in that they were building the new stadium partially on the footprint of the existing one, so were hampered by that.
Our new stadium is being constructed a few miles away from the existing one, on land that is pretty mich derelict, so once the task of backfilling the dock is complete, we can crack on with building works, without the hassle of having to work around an existing working stadium, which should make the whole task a little swifter.

From someone on the build team...

We’ve got raking and UXB survey to do in next couple of weeks. Then some dock wall repairs in advance of filling.

First spade in the ground, you can rest easy now @brap2

"Everton hope to be in that position as soon as possible and there remains confidence they will start full works at some point in the second half of this year."

Very reassuring
I knew that someday I was going to die, and I knew that before I died, two things would happen to me. That number one; I would regret my entire life, and number two; that I would want to live my life over again.

See our neighbours doing another loft conversion Anfield Rd. End, chopping down 37 mature trees in Stanley Park to do so, how does that get approval !

Dunno, but they're installing rai-seating, so we'll likely get a glimpse of what it looks like before it gets put into Bramley Moore.

On anothe rnote, the Annie Road extension was the reason i couldnt get on board with the "make it bigger than Anfield" quote. It would have looked like petty one-upmanship that they were able to just immediately beat us over.
